Me & Thee will kick off the winter season with an extensive and compelling varied lineup of talents with the aim to develop new audiences.

“We have been a non-profit all-volunteer group since 1970, so we have been around a long time and we have a lot of new volunteers, a lot of new energy and we are attempting to rebuild that tradition, that music tradition here in Marblehead,” said Anthony Silva, founder of Me & Thee Coffeehouse.

Starting on Friday, Feb. 3, Me and Thee Music will kick off their winter season with Brazilian Jazz player Teresa Ines Quintet beginning at 8 p.m.
Quintet, born in Rio de Janeiro, has performed at sold-out houses at the world-famous Zinc Bar in New York City, the Regattabar and Ryles in Cambridge as well as in concert halls across Europe, South America, and Brazil.

Joining her will be pianist Nando Michelin, flutist Fernando Brandão, Ebinho Cardoso on bass, and South African percussionist Lumanyano Mzi.
Following the sound of Brazil, Marblehead’s own Hayley Reardon will perform on Friday, Feb. 17.

Since first appearing on the Me&Thee stage while in high school, Hayley moved to Nashville and become a critically acclaimed pop artist who has toured all through Europe. Her latest extended play (EP), The Good Light, was recorded in Barcelona with one of Spain’s finest guitarists Pau Figueres.

On Friday, March 3, award-winner singer, songwriter, comedian, author, and storyteller Don White and friends will present his North Shore Birthday Show. After 10 CDs, three live DVD’s and two books, White is still bringing laughter and tears to his audiences.
Traveling from the Berkshires, The Nields are sisters Nerissa and Katrina who will perform on Friday, March 24.
The Nields have performed with The Band, 10,000 Maniacs, James Taylor, and the Indigo Girls. The Chicago Tribune wrote that “the marvelously expressive Nields provide vocals sounds at various times very much like the Bangles, the Roches, and Alan’s Morrissette.
The Me&Thee is supported in part by a grant from the Marblehead Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Tickets are $25 for regular admission and, $10 for students. Locally, tickets are available at Arnould’s Gallery, Washington Street, Marblehead, and online at meandthee.org. No phone orders will be accepted and no other ticket websites are authorized.

Doors will open at 7:15 p.m., at 28 Mugford Street in Marblehead. Following at 7:30 p.m. the kitchen will open and refreshments will be served.
